What if Your A/C Still Works… but Gives Weird Signs?

As soon as your A/C starts giving early signs that “something is not quite right”. It is better to be aware of these warning signs, and call us as soon as you notice them. DOn’t let them run for a while, and take the risk to call us too late.

To help you figure out some of the signs that something wrong is happening, we have put together this guide.

 

Signs Your Air Conditioning System is Going Bad…

Here are several unmistakable signs that “something is up” and calls for quick action.

    • Your A/C does not blow cold

The first thing to check when you feel that your air conditioning is not blowing cold, or the temperature of your home is going up, is your thermostat. Yes, it sounds a bit ridiculous to say that, but someone in your household may have turned down your thermostat, or even turned it off, and your A/C is just not blowing enough to cool your rooms. Just check this first and this may avoid calling an air conditioning service technician and having to pay for a visit.

If this check does not show anything unusual, what are your options? Two common causes for an A/C that does not blow cold are (1) the compressor is failing, and (2) there is simply not enough refrigerant in your system anymore. In itself, that last one could be a bad sign that you may have a refrigerant leak somewhere. We would have to trace back the leak, plug it or repair, and recharge your A/C. If your compressor is failing, that’s a big deal which requires a replacement.

Bottom line: it’s time to call us. Call (520) 664-3699, tell us what you observe, and request urgent air conditioning repair service.

    • The flow of cool air feels weak

When you place your hands near the vents in various areas of your home, your hands can hardly feel the flow of air going through the blades. The airflow may be cool, as usual, but it feels like a trickle, not a stream. There are several possible diagnostics for this, but the most common ones are that your A/C compressor is on its way out, or that your duct system is becoming really constrained — usually by an unusual quantity of dust and debris. You can always check your filter(s), to verify whether or not the system is overly dirty. If so, change your filters immediately, and check again how the airflow behaves.

    • Your A/C is making weird sounds

One of the most usual ways you will detect an anomaly in the regular operation of your A/C is when your hear alarming sounds. These can happen when your unit starts, but also when it is simply on.

      • High pitched squeal: it could a bad bearing in a rotating part, or your unit compressor dying
      • Grating sound: it could be a used bearing that’s impeding the normal rotation of a fan
      • Repeating starts-stops: that could be an indication that the motor is not getting the “juice” it needs from the capacitor to start
      • Loud buzz: There is a chance that your A/C has an electrical problem, or that the compressor is dying
      • Hissing: A surefire sign that there is a leak in the refrigerant line
      • Loud bang: A moving part is hitting other parts inside the A/C, a sign that some parts are loose, or springs are worn out

If you hear these noises, it is high time to call our hotline for an inspection and, most likely, repair service. It could be a good idea to turn off your A/C to prevent further damage, and call us at (520) 664-3699. Request urgent air conditioning repair service, and tell us what sounds you heard.

    • Leaks and water damage

If you observe signs of humidity near your air conditioner (inside or outside), you may be facing a leak in your refrigerant line. This line will eventually get corroded and start wearing down. Leaks happen all the times: most commonly, you will find them near fittings, couplings, joints, drains and hoses.

When you can observe abnormal humidity around your A/C unit, you will also probably notice that your airflow is not as cool as usual. That results from a refrigerant leakage, and the line needs to be repaired and your unit recharged.

Water damage due to an air conditioning unit is really bad for a home. The most common problem is the clogging of the drain system, followed by an overflow of the drain pan. A/Cs have drain systems that ensure a way out for condensation water. But with moisture comes mold… especially in  humid areas of our country (like Lousiana and Florida) or during heavily humid weather (like monsoon time in Arizona).

When mold grows inside a drainage system, it restricts the normal drip of condensation water, and water starts accumulating in the drain pipe, then the drain pan. When this happens, the drain pan overflows, and water spills everywhere: typically behind drywall, where it is not immediately observable. After several hours, it pools on a floor or a ceiling and this is when the damage becomes apparent.

To avoid facing this situation, you only have 2 options:

(A) You conduct visual inspections of your drain system indoor and outdoor on a regular basis, looking at the drip, any sign of mold on the drain pipe, and any accumulation of water in the drain pan. If you see anything like that, it’s time to call D&H with an urgent request for air conditioning service.

(B) You protect your system with a maintenance contract: our HVAC technicians will visit your home twice, and carefully look at any sign of obstruction of your drainage system. They will remove any debris, any type of obstruction along the drainage line. D&H offers such a maintenance plan, called the Family Maintenance Plan, with many benefits and nice discounts on parts and labor, for just a few dollars a month.
